“On the day of the CNA certification exam, this group was very nervous. But all of the moms passed their tests beautifully, and the really inspiring thing to see was how those who finished stayed to support others who were still testing. Everyone wanted to see their classmates succeed. It was truly a group experience. For those who went straight into clinicals, you could feel the reality of their new work life setting in, with the other moms cheering them on as they began. The next Climb day was a tumble of stories and experience, surprises and a confidence that they knew they could do this work successfully.”

— Stacie McDonald, Gillette Program Director
